Cheryl Rainfield tells me that the classic Mr Popper's Penguins is set to become a movie. This is about the fifty-seventeenth children's book I've heard of (classic and recent) that's in the pipeline to the theatres. Somewhere, I have a neat article about how and why this is happening so much recently. Until I find that, I'll enjoy thinking of penguinine mayhem.
It does, however, terrify me just a smidge that the writers that the studio picked were also responsible for a movie called Sex Drive. Yikes.
